Retroperitoneoscopic ureterolithotomy is one of the accepted procedures [1–3] in the management of ureteric calculi.

Retroperitoneoscopic ureterolithotomy is indicated for large ureteric stones where a few administrations of extracorporeal shock-wave lithotripsy (ESWL) fail to fragment the stones or there is technical difficulty during ureteroscopy.
